"Hello Mom Alitalia".

Thus begins the testimony of an Alitalia flight attendant, on the eve of the last day of operation of the "national airline" - October 14 - who expresses her "greeting" with emotion and bitterness.


"I have always dreamed of being a flight attendant - says the worker, over 25 years of service in the company - Since I was a child I had seen the" hostesses "of Alitalia at the airport when I accompanied my mother to pick up my father from a trip And finally, even at 25, I was a "volatile." Selections, exams, all the necessary procedures. And the years have passed and my love for this job has grown more and more. My love for Alitalia. Now that, after 74 years, she will no longer be there, I am sad, bitter, angry ". "I don't sleep - he adds - I think about all my colleagues and the consequences.


Because someone or something bigger than me decided to kill her. I have forgiven her as many times as you do for someone you truly love, but someone else has never looked into her eyes and heart, because if she did it wouldn't have been so cruel. Hello Mom Alitalia ", he concludes. 



Bitterness and anger are the sentiments widespread in these hours among Alitalia workers. "It is a defeat for Italy, a page of pride for our country closes for the world with our logo that represented us as Italians - say two workers for over 20 years in service in the company - personally we are embittered but above all because a unique know-how is lost and the sector will be swallowed up by low cost. This is also the risk for Ita ". On 14 October with the last flight, Cagliari - Rome, the "sad" end of a history spanning over 70 years. The curtain falls on the old Alitalia which will leave the field to the new Ita. Meanwhile, the mobilization of workers continues with a permanent garrison still today and tomorrow in front of the Alitalia building, under theeye of the police, but the attendance, at the moment, this morning, are counted in a few dozen.

"I am disheartened by what has happened - is the testimony of a maintenance worker - After 34 years of service in the Company I did not expect such an end. I am out of Ita, I have not been hired. It is a bad situation. The Alitalia flag was fine. all over the world, appreciated by everyone. Not only Italians flew with Alitalia but also international travelers who have always shown appreciation for our reliability, competence. It is a desolation to see this epilogue. I always came to work with a smile, with the passion for this job and with the curiosity to learn more and more. Now we can only hope for a second step when the new company, hopefully, will have the opportunity to increase the aircraft fleet but the premises, given the industrial plan,are not encouraging and the market risks being in the hands of low cost "." In this moment, more than resignation, a feeling of anger prevails - this is the testimony of two hostesses - we have the feeling of having suffered an abuse, it is the signature is also of the State, because once again it is the workers who pay for sins that are not ours. And communication did not help us, because we passed, wrongly, as privileged and it is not right, considering the sacrifices always made. Ita cannot be considered as a start-up due to the working conditions that arise. We now hope that there will still be a serious dialogue between the trade unions, Ita and the Government ".a feeling of anger prevails - this is the testimony of two hostesses - we have the feeling of having suffered abuse, it is also the signature of the State, because once again it is the workers who pay for sins that are not ours.
